I’ve seen the “busy bag” concept many times and have pinned quite a few ideas on Pinterest; however, I haven’t actually brought one with us to use out and about until today. There are always toys and books in our car and something in my
mommy bag purse, but today I considered having a quiet, hands-on activity with us.
Enter stickers. I loved stickers as a child, and Kiddo has shown a recent interest in them, so I quickly put a “busy bag” together to help occupy him today at a restaurant. It worked!
This one was very simple, and everything came from Dollar General.
- Pencil bag with 2 zippered pockets
- A small spiral notebook
- 3 sheets of different stickers (smiley faces, Cars, and wild animals)
- A few crayons if he wanted to draw
As you can see, he was happily occupied, and he even put a couple of stickers on his daddy’s shirt.
What busy bags or activities do you use for quiet time or out and about? Let’s share!
